Gigi Hadid Banned From China's Victoria Secret Fashion Show

The model was accused of racist behaviour by Chinese internet users a few months ago

It's mid-November, which means Thanksgiving is coming and Christmas and Hanukkah and a slew of other holidays celebrated by various religions and countries after that.

The VS Fashion Show airs Tuesday, Nov. 28 at 10 p.m. on CBS.

It's no secret the model has been dealing with backlash over a video posted online showing Gigi imitating Buddha for the camera.

She's not the only famous face to have been banned from entering China ahead of the show though. "Victoria's Secret is not going to comment on that", he said, referring line-up questions to each model's individual agencies. The lingerie brand promises the show will include some newcomers as well. When Hadid was announced as attending the show this summer, she was over-the-moon.

"I'm so bummed I won't be able to make it to China this year", she wrote on Twitter. 'Love my VS family, and will be with all my girls in spirit!

'Can't wait to tune in with everyone to see the attractive show I know it will be, and already can't wait for next year'.

She was accused of donning a politically charged dress which was embellished with sunflowers during her performance in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. The decision to hold the show in Shanghai is reportedly causing problems for both models and the press, as Ukrainian model Dasha Khlystun and Russian models Irina Sharipova, Julia Belyakova and Kate Grigorieva have been denied a visa to travel to China, Fashionista reports.
